Matchmaker provides subscribers with information on climate resilient infrastructure projects worldwide through a specialized project dashboard derived from the unique CDP Cities disclosure platform and our partners.
Often climate related activities in cities are isolated from economic development outreach, creating communication and information barriers between cities and potential investors. Matchmaker bridges this divide by working with cities to highlight projects in flood control, waste management, sustainable transportation, renewable energy, water management, and energy efficiency. Matchmaker serves as a clearinghouse for cities to showcase planned projects to the finance sector and better position them to mitigate against and adapt to climate change.
